Council 4 members continued their efforts to treat and cure breast cancer by supporting the CT Race in the Park on May 12 at Walnut Hill Park in New Britain.
This was the 10th straight year our union has sponored the pre-Mother Day's race, the biggest fund-raising event conducted by the CT Breast Health Initiative, which was founded to make a difference locally in the fight against breast cancer through education and research
Council 4 members include city workers in AFSCME Local 1186, Local 1303-332 and AFSCME Local 818, many of whom labored intensively to get Walnut Hill Park ready and provided health, safety and maintenance services before, during and after the event.
“The Race in the Park is a worthwhile cause to support. Breast cancer affects everyone’s family,” said Helen Murratti-Pion, a school secretary and Local 1186 member.
